well not blogging sucks.
im so, so sorry that i haven’t been writing much lately, but i kind of lost a large portion of my interweb access when i quit my job. (stupid job.)
i just wanted you guys to know that im still alive.
and funny as ever.
i’ve basically spent the last few days chillin with my family from new orleans and freaking out about where the heck me and my awesome couch are going to live.
also, ive been navigating chicagoland traffic and eating mcdonald’s french fries WAY more than i should.
however, more importantly, the down time also has allowed me to do my favorite thing in the middle of the day.
i’ve seen 23 episodes of of ‘law and order,’ (seriously, that show is ALWAYS on). I’ve watched the ”local news’ at 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. and i’ve gotten all caught up on ‘randy jackson presents:‘america’s best dance crew.”
which brings me to my point: I LOVE WATCHING PEOPLE DANCE!
see, ABDC (that’s how ‘america’s best dance crew’ is abbreviated by mtv. i didn’t just make that up) is this super awesome show where “dance crews” from across “america” compete to be the “best.” (what exactly they do after they win the show is yet unclear as cd sales of nobody signing don’t do so well, but i have hope they mtv will be able to market these people.)
it’s hosted by everyone’s favorite high-school crush mario lopez (better known as A.C. Slater) and he’s still has the EXACT SAME hair cut that he had in 1992. he tries really hard to be cool like he was on “saved by the bell,” but the problem is “saved by the bell” was not actually cool, so instead he’s just super corny.
his poor hosting abilities don’t even matter though, because this show is about THE CREWS (which incidentally, rock my socks.) they do like tricks and stuff. and they wear cool outfits. and they are super good dancers (hence the show’s title) and one is even from NAPERVILLE, ILLINOIS (where my bff currently lives).
the judges are also fun.
they include a nice guy (shane), a bitchy talkative woman (lil’ mama) and a gay guy prick a random other guy (mr. j.c. iwasinaboyband)
(i have a serious crush on shane)
the most awesome thing about this show though is that it REALLY IS fun for the whole family.
for example: me, my nine-year-old sister and my 40-something uncle recently enjoyed a full episode together even though NONE of the commercials were marketed toward us. (my teen-age cousin also watched the show with us and afterward immediately went to the store to buy fructis, pre-bought tickets for ‘meet dave’ and signed up for “NOW THAT’S WHAT I CALL MUSIC 432.”)
in conclusion: i love ‘america’s best dance crew’ and you will too. now where are my french fries?
